What Happens During Duct Cleaning
Our duct cleaning includes a thorough cleaning of various components of forced-air systems, including the supply and return air ducts, registers, grilles, diffusers, heat exchangers, and cooling coils. To achieve this, we’ll gain access to the interior of your ducts through either an existing access port or a new one, then feed various cleaning tools into the ducts. These tools work in various ways, using brushes, air, etc., to knock loose dust, debris, and blockages in your ducts.
The loose mess can then be simply vacuumed out by our tools, leaving your ducts far cleaner and the air you breathe much less polluted.

FAQs About Duct Cleaning
Some of the frequently asked questions about duct cleaning we receive are:
How do you clean your ducts yourself?
DIY homeowners are responsible and smart. But duct cleaning just isn’t a DIY job. You need specialized tools, such as large rotary brushes and a high-powered vacuum system. Cleaning your ducts yourself can cause damages that will lead to expensive repairs.
It’s well worth it to have your ducts cleaned. But it’s not worth it to do it yourself.
How much does it cost to have your air ducts cleaned?
The cost depends heavily on where you live in the U.S. Other factors that affect your cost include:
- Climate region
- Level of contamination
- Number of vents
- Services included
- Size of the system to be cleaned
- System accessibility
- Type of duct material
Is duct cleaning a waste of money?
Some properties don’t actually need duct cleaning, but their owners want to do everything possible to improve indoor air quality and maximize the energy efficiency of their HVAC system. If you have an older home or live in an area where there’s heavy construction, duct cleaning may be a good idea.
You should definitely consider annual duct cleaning if:
- You have allergies/asthma
- You have a newly constructed home
- You have ongoing health issues
- You have pets that shed a lot of hair/dander
- You had recent home renovations
- You have had water contamination or damages
- Someone in your home is a smoker
When should I have my ducts cleaned?
Every three to five years is standard for air duct cleaning, though you should arrange cleanings more frequently if you have allergies, if someone in your home smokes, or if you have a houseful of furry friends. Ductwork cleaning is necessary if you have high levels of pollen or dust and any time you suspect there is mold behind your walls.
